There was recently a case of a woman whose account accidentally got credited with $350,000 meant for one of the UN relief agenices. She used the money to start a dry cleaners. Two years later the bank realized their mistake and sued her to get the money back. She said she only had $35,000 cash in her assets. The bank wanted her to sell the drycleaners but she said it wasn't possible.

Beyond a lawsuit, I would think she would be facing criminal charges. And why was it impossible to sell? Lack of buyers or lack of desire? What a scam!
